On our recent trip to the UK, we visited Malvern where we lived for 8 years prior to becoming expats, almost 6 years ago. We still own a property there so we booked into a B&B in the town to meet the tenants and have a few days catching up with old friends.
We probably didn't walk the Malvern hills as often as we should've or could've. Being outdoors is something both Peter and I miss, in South Africa it wasn't safe to just go off walking and in Dubai, it's too hot most of the year and besides, everything is just beige here.
We parked at the Wyche cutting and walked along the hills to the Beacon, it was windy and we managed to get back to the car before the rain came. The paths are tarmac'd so no specialist walking equipment required.
Although we are undecided as to where we would live when we return to the UK (time scale unknown) we both talked about how lovely it would be to bring #BobTheDog on the hills for a walk and we met several dogs on our walk.
Our house is down there, somewhere.
The views from the hills are spectacular and the camera just doesn't do them justice.
The wildflowers are stunning, providing a break from all the greenery and brightening up a dull summer's day.
We've driving through the area in the past but we have never stopped to appreciate the Malvern Hills. I love a view and the area seems to have plenty!ReplyDelete
it is gorgeous around thereDelete
beautiful place. it's always like that isn't it? not taking full advantage of where we live.... i know i'm guilty of itReplyDelete
we've really made the most of living in South Africa and in DubaiDelete
Pretty spectacular views from the top! You're making me want to get my hiking boots on and go exploring. Beautiful, especially the flowers in the long grass.ReplyDelete
we really miss our freedom to go for a walk without the fierce heatDelete
You've captured some gorgeous views. We always seem to drive through the Malverns but never stop #pocoloReplyDelete
it really is worth stopping off for a night or two if you enjoy walkingDelete
Ah it's been years since I've been up the Malverns!ReplyDelete
Such lovely views - and so different to the norm for you too.
Thank you for joining in again x
all so very different and really noticing it now the longer we I've outside the ukDelete
So stunning.. And always great to be able to walk around without worrying about safety. Which is so sad in SA considering the beautyReplyDelete
I know there is such lovely scenery in SA that we can't exploreDelete
A beautiful looking area, would be an amazing place to see the seasons change.ReplyDelete
i really miss the seasons in the ukDelete
What glorious views. We walked near there once many years ago but not sure where exactly. A beautiful place, glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for linking up to #PoCoLo xReplyDelete
